(AP) — No choking for the Washington Capitals this time. Joe Juneau's goal 6:24 into overtime lifted Washington to a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night, putting the Capitals into the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in their 24-year history. Brian Bellows set up the game winner when he swept around Darryl Shannon and tried stuffing the puck past Dominik Hasek. Juneau eventually grabbed the loose puck and sent the puck under Hasek's glove. Washington's Peter Bondra sent the game into overtime when he redirected Andrei Nikolishin's cross-ice pass past Hasek with 5:59 remaining in the third period and the Capitals on the power play. The Capitals, who have won seven of their last eight road games, will play the winner of the Detroit-Dallas series for the Stanley Cup.

General ORLANDO, Fla. — People wondering about potentially dangerous side effects of a controversial sports nutrition supplement, taken to get extra energy and strength, were given a yellow caution light Thursday. Researchers gave a qualifed OK, but warned that there still is a lot unknown about the muscle-building supplement known as crea- tine. An American College of Sports Medicine panel told doctors, athletic trainers and researchers at its convention that there have been no significant health problems associated with the use of crea- tine. "Nobody has shown it's dangerous," said . Aaron Sidner, a researcher at Oregon State. However, scientists warned that no studies have been done on the long-range effects of the product, no one knows how it reacts with other muscle-building supplements and the quality of what a person can buy varies.
